Vanilla Ice Biopic Starring Dave Franco ” To The Extreme” To Start Pre Production Soon

Our good Juggalo Homie himself is about to be immortalized on the big screen, that’s right there is a VANILLA ICE movie coming and it’s starring Dave Franco, brother of James.

Read the excerpts below from EW,People and Rolling Stone:

In January 2019, the To the Extreme casting listing’s logline read, “From a high school dropout selling cars in Dallas to having the first hip-hop single to top the Billboard charts with ‘Ice Ice Baby,’ a young Vanilla Ice struggles with stardom, extortion attempts and selling out as he makes music history.”

Dave Franco confirmed he will portray Vanilla Ice in an upcoming biopic that puts a Disaster Artist-like spin on the story of the “Ice Ice Baby” rapper.

The film To the Extreme was originally revealed via casting notice in January 2019, but the biopic has not yet started production. However, Franco spoke for the first time about playing Vanilla Ice in an interview with Insider.

Franco likened To the Extreme’s tone to that of The Disaster Artist, a film directed by his brother James Franco and starring the Franco brothers as the duo responsible for the beloved terrible movie The Room.

“With [The Disaster Artist], people expected us to make a broad comedy where we make fun of [The Room director] Tommy Wiseau, but the more real we played it, the funnier and heartfelt it was — that’s the tone we want for this one as well,” Franco told Insider.

As the film’s crew is “inching closer and closer to preproduction,” Franco added that he’s had phone calls with the “Ice Ice Baby” hitmaker — born Robert Van Winkle — to speak about the project during his time at home amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“Rob is such a sweet and intelligent guy and he’s been super helpful in the process of getting all the details correct and making us privy to information the public doesn’t know,” Franco said. “Just talking to him I can’t help but think about the rabbit holes I’m going to go down to get ready for the role.”

I don’t know about ya’ll but I am pretty stoked for this, much respect to V-ICE and his entire team..

    the movie will most likely be set in his early career and ICP,Juggalos, the gatherings will not be mentioned but would be cool if they were.
